Handful of Columbus Blue Jackets prospects had productive playoffs


While the majority of Columbus Blue Jackets prospects missed out on post-season play this season – the Springfield Falcons, where the bulk of the organization’s prospects play, missed the playoffs – there were a few that did make enormous contributions to their teams' playoff fortunes. Goaltender Mathieu Corbeil helped lead the Saint John Sea Dogs to a QMJHL Championship, while Michael Chaput was named the Memorial Cup MVP.

Michael Chaput led the Shawinigan Cataractes to the Memorial Cup and was rewarded with an NHL contract, while goaltender Mathieu Corbeil of the Saint John Sea Dogs went unsigned.

Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".
